Looking after your windscreen wipers

Are your windscreen wipers working efficiently?  Do they squeak everytime you turn them on? These are sure signs that the wiper blades are becoming worn out. Wiper blades can also become damaged or torn if you use them to clear ice from the windscreen or when the car is frozen.

Wiper blades have had a busy time with the weather been so poor, and now is the time to have them checked for wear. All of our centres have wiper blades available for sale and we will be delighted to fit them for you.

Normally you would just replace the blade on a wiper, however on occasion your wiper arm may become bent or may be broken, this can happen if you continue to operate your wiper blades when they are worn out.
